Full system requirements for The Elder Scrolls Online reported on Jan-29-2014

Following on from the epic The Elder Scrolls Online Arrival Trailer from earlier, we have our hands on the specs to see what you might need to play it

Bare in mind that this title is an MMORPG, which usually means they aim the PC requirements at as broad a range of PCs as possible so they can get as many players as possible on the same screen. Well while the Elder Scrolls Online system requirements are pretty mild on the minimum spec end, they certainly are not shy in other areas. Lets take a look to see if we can run it shall we...

The Elder Scrolls Online Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP 32

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo or Dual core AMD processor

RAM: 2GB of system memory

HD : 60GB of free hard disk

GPU RAM: 512MB VRAM with Shader Model 4.0 or higher

GPU: nVidia GeForce 8800GT or AMD Radeon HD2600

DX: 9c

NET: Internet connection, ideally 1Mb or greater

 

The Elder Scrolls Online Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista 64-bit | Windows 7 64-bit | Windows 8 64-bit

CPU: Quad core 2.3 GHz

RAM: 4GB of system memory

HD : 60GB of free hard disk

GPU RAM: 2GB VRAM

GPU: nVidia GeForce 560 Ti or AMD Radeon HD 6950

NET: Internet connection, ideally 2Mb or greater

The Elder Scrolls Online System Requirement Breakdown Analysis

Wait what? Did you just see that? It said, 60GB free hard disk space. Err that means I cant actually run it on my tiny 128GB SSD. Basically its time for a ruthless hard drive spring clean people. Those games that are gathering wishful thinking dust on your drive, waiting for you to one day play them again, drop them into the recycle bin. And then dont forget to clear out that recycle bin. The Elder Scrolls Online needs a huge amount of hard drive space and the chances are, it will need even more once the patches and updates start flowing. Get a year into this title and as long as it hasnt been canned already, it will likely need around 80-100GB free disk space.

As usual the GPU minimum requirement for this online title is low end, as is the CPU requirement. So you will likely find a PC that is 6 years old will scrape through to get the Elder Scrolls Online up and running, if you really want it to. But it seems like they are going to open up the graphical settings to let us PC gamers do what we like best, tweak and adjust the settings to suit our hardware. The high end GPU requirements are still a few years old now, but are pretty solid never the less. With the 2GB VRAM requirement being a little peculiar. We dont think there is much purpose in adding that sort of requirement. If you have a GPU that is comparable to the 560 Ti or even a little weaker you will get a great visual performance from The Elder Scrolls Online. It wont be long until GD tucks into this feast to check what it really runs like on various machines.

I don't play this game, but If I had to guess…. my guess would be because the game is DX9 and modern cards are made for DX11, and may or may not perform too well on DX9, back off your settings a bit, or see if a DX11 option is available.
